.september books.

It's that special time again where I share with you what I read the month before. Is it just me or does it seem like the months go by faster and faster the older you get?

Through No Fault Of My Own: Felser Lampert  This was  a great little read before bed. It's the diary of young well to do girl growing up in the 1920's in St. Paul, MN. She gets in trouble at home, sneaks out to go to Friday night dances, and gets in trouble more than a few times! It was a cute little read that gives the insight to what Grand Ave. and St. Paul was like way back when. 

The Lost Continent: Bill Bryson  Oh, how I love Mr. Bryson!!! He is the only guy that I feel can write about anything in the whole world and make it both interesting and funny. This book is about his travels through small town America after living in Great Britain for 10 years. His snarky remarks are spot on at times and make you laugh out loud when reading. This book was written in 1989 but still holds some truths to this day. I highly recommend you picking up a Bill Bryson book and getting lost in his little world. 

Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? Mindy Kaling  I was recommended this book by my best friend, so I put my name on the library waiting list and waited for about 2 months for the book. I waited so long I forgot that I was on the list! The book was really easy to read it took me only about 2 days of casual reading to finish the book. Kaling shares many random funny stories about her life from childhood to writing on The Office. The stories are hilarious, but fall into random parts of the book. I would have liked the different stories to be more organized into chapters/sections of the books, however that is my only complaint. This book made me love Mindy Kaling!!! I recommend it for a light, easy read in between books or if you are looking to release some stress. 

What have you been reading?

Goal: 32/50 books!!
